Best Troops

If you use him in the open field use Infantry to get his march speed buff that is really good along all other traits from the Infantry Talent build below. For your city defense troop types are mixed anyway.

Best Commander Pairing for Pericles

Phyrrus
Phyrrus

Sun Tzu is the slam-dunk pairing with him also for defending your city in very early stages (please keep in mind that youwill switch to legendary defender for your city early anyway) but also Sun Tzu with him in the open field with a infantry march is a viable epic pairing in early stages. Bjorn Ironside can also be a pairing for open field with the infantry synergy and a full infantry march if you have him maxed out or high on your priority list. Overall, also when looking at the fact that they are epic commanders, not the big banger you will run very long in the game. Charles Martel also has shielding and if you combine them together, even when your Charles Martel is at a low upgrade stage, you will shield back-to-back and make it hard for anybody to actually take them down, also with the march speed bonus. Richard with the shielding and healing can be a durable setup that is hard to get down and you don’t have to have your Richard leveld up too much – for early kingdoms a good infantry march. Phyrrus is released along him and their synergy between shielding and buffing is good. On paper a great synergy but in reality if you are at a stage where you really consider running him as epic you don’t have an expertised Phyrrrus available and, the other way round, if you have a fairly upgraded pHyrrus you are having better pairings to go with.

Best Equipment Forge Order

In terms of equipment, here’s what I recommend to use as the route for Pericles. I have tailored this priority order that you can follow step-by-step to prevent forging and running equipment that is not useful or only provides a very small improvement. Follow the equipment path step-by-step and you will have the best and most economical gear:

Iron Helm
Iron Helm is the first gear piece to forge and equip and has good attack stats for the invest
Cloth Gloves
Cloth Gloves is like the Iron Helmet a really low-hanging fruit with solud stats for the investment
Blessed Blade
Blessed Blade is an amazing piece with massive additional health for infantry and a must-gear piece at this point
Infantry Breastplate
Infantry Breastplate has some decent defense for infantry and is a solid next gear item especially as you can use any defensive stats that you can get at this point and they deliver just that
Ranger Trousers
Ranger Trousers are the only gear piece that you can use here that have infantry stats, although it's attack
Boots of Reverence
Boots of Reverence is like the Ranger Trousers the only green option with infantry stats but the attack it offers is in general not that important but rather have it than leaving this slot without anything
Windswept Bracers
Windswept Bracers are the first blue gear to equip and it changes the defense to health, which is great. As I mentioned in so many other spots, health is the strongest stat in Rise of Kingdoms so this is a switch that makes absolutely sense
Windswept War Helm
Windswept War Helm is the next item to use. It will make the set bonus for the Windswept set with additional attack and has more attack than the Iron Helm you had here so it's definitely an improvement
Windswept Boots
Windswept Boots is not the most obvious next step as most players tend to rather choose The Scarlet Hounds but hear me out. Your previous gear here had attack and the Scarlet Hounds looks very juicy with the 4% health, but with infantry at this point you struggle so much with march speed that the additional march speed in the Windswept Boots is more than worth it and you NEED this gear item to get the second Windswept Set Bonus of 4 items (as there is no Windswept leg gear), and this set bonus will give you additional 4% march speed. For that reason take the hit and skip the health and take the Windswept Boots here
Windswept Breastplate
Windswept Breastplate has solid defense and gives you the 2nd Windswept Bonus with 4% march speed so that should be your next step here

Best Builds For Pericles

Below you will find the talent tree builds for Pericles that make sense when running as the primary commander in any march in Rise of Kingdoms. Please also refer to the description below each talent tree as I explain a general route on how you should spend your talents there + some additional background for each talent build that I very likely will appreciate.

This is the talent build to use with Pericles for open field and early-stage brawling with a full infantry march, getting the Infantry Tree maxed out and then put the leftover points in the good talents that give good value.When we talk about priority here, I’d jump into the Support Tree first to get Rejuvenate first as this is giving a huge rage benefit and his core is the shielding and improving stats before going into the Infantry Tree to ramp up his infantry stats.
When you are running Pericles as your early-kingdom city defender you might switch up things a little bit but going too deep into the Garrison Tree is not making a lot of sense when looking at his mechanics, tbh.Also go first into the Support Tree for Rejuvenate and then Emergency Protection as shielding and damage reduction is your biggest and only chance to perform well defending your city with him. From here take the shown talents in the Garrison Tree before getting the best out of the Infantry Tree as shown below without affecting infantry units only. This is the build that makes most sense to defend your city with pericles as your primary commander.

Conclusion

I hope this guide for building Pericles helped you investing without wasting much time and resources. If you liked it or you further questions (or maybe also annnotations that you believe should be added here in this guide), please don’t hesitate to post them below in the commen section. Thanks for reading and have a great day and see you out in the kingdoms.
